The predicted cold front came through and when we woke up this morning it was 32 F (0 C) in Santa Fe. The good thing is that there is so little humidity that we were able to take Laia for a walk (albeit with our jackets on) and not feel cold. The dryness has created havoc with our noses though. I’ve taken to putting vaseline on a q-tip and inserting it in my nose to prevent further nose bleeds (a lovely sight, I know). I don’t know if my medical friends would approve but desperate times call for desperate measures.
We had changed our minds about heading further up into the mountains to see Taos because of the uncertainty with the weather and instead headed to the northwest corner of New Mexico – Navajo Lake State Park.
It seemed very remote with not even a ranger to check us in. We just had to pick a site and leave the money in an envelope. When we actually got down to where the campground was there
were many other campers there, but we were able to get a site overlooking the lake.
Tomorrow me head on to Moab, the starting point of our adventures in Utah.
